'You' season two will focus more on Joe's early life

We still don't have the release date for the second season of Netflix's "You" but we're starting to find out a little more about what the plot might entail. Co-creator Sera Gamble has announced we will get more insight into Joe's early life.

Based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes, the first series was added to Netflix towards the end of last year. It follows bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) as he becomes wildly, worryingly obsessed with a woman called Guinevere (Elizabeth Lail).

The second season will be loosely based on the novel's sequel, Hidden Bodies, and will see Joe move from New York to LA - through no choice of his own.

Gamble said to Cosmopolitan: "We'll be going into Joe's early life in season two, and naturally we want to know more and move around in his entire life.

"I will say that the whole time we're in the writers' room talking about what that story could be, or what flashbacks or glimpses into his life we might catch, this has been a guiding principle for us; he had a pretty terrible childhood and that does contribute to who he is as an adult.

"But we also wanted to make it clear that a lot of us had shitty childhoods and most of us don't do what Joe Goldberg does - we're trying to walk that line."

Filming for season two started back in February and we cannot wait to see it!
